Let’s hope this one doesn’t let us down… the wait has been long and people are expecting flawless performance.

I’m holding my cash and resisting to get an opus or a lii-500. This “dreamcharger” better be ready before this Christmas, it has been delayed since july Tired

Hope that your investments inflate faster than Ultrafire capacity ratings, since this charger will likely be quite expensive considering that its baby brother SkyRC NC2500 was originally priced at $105 when introduced two years ago.

Some say it will be priced around $150…

So what killer feature does this charger offer that justifies a $100-$120 premium over other 4-cell chargers?

I started my hobby in flashlights and chargers in early 2012.

After reading several threads in CPF and BLF during those first few months, I was able to discern that the chargers to buy at that time was the buy-once, cry-once models which were the Maha C9000, the Pila IBC and eventually also the iCharger 106B+. I had the pleasure of owning and using those chargers, never looked back, and has not regretted buying those.

Several VP2s and Opus versions later, the search never ends for me.

I bought my Pila IBC then for $55…yes, $55! So, if we go by the logic of ratio-and-proportion (considering what this charger can do compared to the Pila), then this SkyRC MC3000 should retail at least $225!

For all intents and purposes, a few of us will need this, but a lot will want this, I, for one, want this….have we ever been satisfied with just one light, or charger, or knife that does not even get used, for that matter?

Even just for the pleasure of owing one, I’ll go for this.

That’s not a good way to infer the price, e.g. a universal remote control does not cost the sum of the prices of the remotes that it can emulate (in fact it may cost less than some of them).

Yeah, but most universal remotes are just too cheaply-made and very average quality compared to the OEMs, and, my post was not intended to be taken that seriously!

What makes this charger expensive is not what it can do, but how well it integrates all the features into a single easy to use high quality unit. It has been under real world testing for quite a time.

If I had to pick only one flashlight, one set of batteries and one charger, I would be sure which light and battery to grab (M43 and 30Q) but not the charger. I hope the MC3000 becomes that charger.

If i only had 1 light and less than a handful of batteries, I would never buy this charger. Way overkill.

If I had many (kind of) batteries and want to do reviews and making graphs to keep track of my cells, I would consider buying one. consider if it was around or below 100.

The plus does a good enough job for what people really need of a multi function charger.

Perhaps this is so to some individuals, but isn’t it ironic that to those of us with already multiple lights and batteries, chances are we also own multiple chargers, yet most probably find a way to “want” this charger?

How ironic it is but I would call it a sweet, pleasurable irony! haha

Some highlight:

  • Advanced analyzing charger, supposed to be very precise.
  • Charging parameters user adjustable (Not only charge current, but ALL parameters).
  • Connection to PC
  • Connection to smartphone
  • Software can be updated

In my opinion it probably has to many settings, but it is possibly to bypass them.
